Short Description:


The Ohio Department of Health is undertaking the Secretary's Minority AIDS Initiative Funding for Care and Prevention in the United States (CAPUS) Demonstration Project


Complete Description:

The purpose of the grant is to reduce HIV related morbidity, mortality, and related health disparities among racial and ethnic minorities in the United States. Grantees are required to 1) increase the proportion of racial and ethnic minorities with HIV, who have diagnosed infection, by expanding and improving HIV testing capacity and 2) optimize linkage to, retention in, and reengagement with care and prevention services for newly diagnosed and previously diagnosed racial and ethnic minorities with HIV by addressing social, economic, clinical, and structural factors influencing HIV health outcomes.

One of the grant required activities is to use laboratory surveillance data to indicate when persons living with HIV are receiving care, not receiving care, or have lab data that indicate poor clinical outcome. Local health department disease intervention specialists (DIS) and/or linkage to care coordinators (LCC) will contact the patient, health care provider, or both to re-establish engagement in care, improve services, and overcome structural, social, or economic obstacles to achieving desired health outcomes (e.g. viral suppression).
